I never had such a long flare as the one I'm having  (two weeks, I know, amateur, right?) but it's really getting me. I haven't moved since my mom's couch for about three days except to go to the bathroom, get something to drink or get someone to take me to the library.
In addition to those meds below, I'm on this anti-vomit stuff, even though I still have the gag reflex...
Haven't been eating anything really...mouth and throat dry from no liquids and breathing through my mouth because I have a cold...
Every time I get up, my muscles end up hurting within five minutes. But I'm restless on the couch and can't stop myself from moving around..
I guess I just wanted to sing my blues. Going to have a colonoscopy on Tuesday and then hopefully they'll get me on some freakin prednisone (hate it but need it!) shakehead
Diagnosed 2002(?)
Currently on: alternating doses of 6mp, 8 Asacol, weekly Humira, & 1000mg Canasa nightly
Also: generic Immodium and Levbid

Hi....ugh, vomitting....hope that subsides soon. You should try to eat or drink something that will have salt and sugar in it. Not artificial sweeteners, however.

Have you considered to use the Canasa twice daily?

Maybe ask the doc if he could put you on other rectal meds...maybe steroid, rather than going to the pred...

Let us know how the scope goes.
*Heather* Status: mild flare enemas tapered to every 3rd night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 x2 daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance 
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux);  Effexor XR 75mg(depression);  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma) 
~vitamins/minerals/supplementsProbiotics....(Natural Factors Protec, Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
